The workshop will be held in Los Angeles at the private north light studio of the artist.
The five day portrait workshop is an intensive and concentrated curriculum covering the creation of a portrait painting from start to finish. Adrian Gottlieb’s course centers on canons of proportion, gesture and comparative measurement as the foundations for portrait painting. During the week, students will create a fully finished painting, painting alongside Gottlieb as he explains each stage of his direct painting method, step by step. Techniques will include alla prima and transparent vs opaque color with a goal of achieving luminosity and capturing the illusion of form. Long poses are essential to Gottlieb’s approach, therefore a live model will return to the same position every day for the full five sessions.
